Summary: Some good points - but outweighed by the fact it uses so much ink and more frustratingly won't print if one of the (colour) catridges is empty...even if you want to print in black and white. Software not user friendly either.
Summary: This has just died after 3 years - it won't scan and it's dropped to 5 minutes to print a page, so I've scrapped it.. While it did everything I asked of it, the 2-star rating is due to ink consumption. The tiny cartridges (which I buy from Refresh Cartridges) seem incredibly cheap, but for the sort of occasional printing I do - a couple of pages a day - they hardly last any time at all due to the ink charging and cleaning cycles.
Summary: Purchased this printer in 2012. When I last use the printer it was fine. Then went to use it recently and an error message of 6500 is all I am getting. Checked the printer and can find nothing loose inside. This error message means the printer is not even connecting, so I cannot even see if a driver change will assist and to make matters worse at first I could not find my printer on the Cannon site in order to request assistance.
Summary: Could I possibly put 0 stars.... This is the second consecutive canon Pixma that has let me down. I shoud have known better. Where to start, let's see.... Scanning: the feeder works 2 times out of 10. one has to feed paper one sheet at at time (what's the point of a feeder then?). Most of the times it jams... useless Printing: first page takes ages to apear. Photo printing is nothing to get exhited about, I guess it is OK.... but wait.... the feeder again...
Summary: There isn't much to love, or disagree about this printer. We've had it for a while now, and it's worked as advertised. The only bit that I'd like improved is support for cloud printing so I can print from anywhere, including my phone and tablets. Also, Canon could do a lot of things to improve its own printing app for Android. It's horrendous. The printer & scanner itself, pretty reliable for the kind of moderate use we put it through.
Summary: This was an amazing bargain as I paid less than half the price they are selling in shops and what an amazing product. You don't have to do anything as it does EVERYTHING for you and even tells you step by step what you need to do. I love love love this amazing product. I have never use the scanner or fax but the copying and printing is fantastic!
